Bored Punk Yacht Club — Origins

Not long ago, a group of 10,000 Apes shook up the Ethereum blockchain with a club they called the “Bored Ape Yacht Club”. Their club claimed the crown of the collectibles world in just a matter of days, while unconsciously evoking something that seemed long gone in this new world of NFTs so dominated with competition and rivalry.

A real community.

This newfound but strong community of apes drew the attention of many, including 888 former CryptoPunks bored of all the glory and glamour of the museums and auction houses they’ve been touring in the past few years, missing the low key but vibrant community they too once had back in 2017.

But apparently, not everyone was quite pleased with the rise of BAYC community; most notably a giant Meebit, allegedly representing no other than Beeple. Beeple’s Meebit waged war on the Apes, hoping to reclaim the throne which once undeniably belonged to the Punks and then Meebits.

Using the distraction caused by this Meebit attack, our 888 Bored Punks found the perfect time to infiltrate the BAYC and have a look around their club hoping to find some secret recipe for building up the community they had in 2017 once again. But in an unforeseen turn of events, the 888 punks being known for just their facial features and accessories all this time, found out about their sense of fashion while browsing through the wardrobes of BAYC.

The plan for finding the blueprints of modern community building was now changed into a full on Punks Gala, which eventually made them decide to silently leave the premises with the clothes they “borrowed” from the Apes.

Now about a week after their raid, those bored and now fashionable Bored Punks, tired of all the wars, competitions and rivalries going on, decided to finally take action. They wanted to try their best to bring back peace and most importantly, a sense of community to the world now so used to overlooking the importance of community with monetary value, replacing the gift of new human connections, bonds and friendships made through the communities with a lust for gains, investments and financial profits whenever possible…

…so that brings us here…

…where the Bored Punk Yacht Club was born; a club built upon the two main pillars of all NFT communities of the world, paying homage to both….but affiliated with neither.

The BPYC is now a club of its own, made for the community, by the community.

It aims to once again prove the triumphant power of passionate, positive, like-minded and creative people banding together.

Welcome to the club.
